I go back a long way with my next interview subject’s work. I first saw Joanna Cassidy in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which I saw at the age of 5 with my family at a drive-in double feature with Big Top Pee-wee. Ms. Cassidy’s work in Who Framed Roger Rabbit as Dolores really made an impact on me. As I grew older and my 80s fandom blossomed, I would see her work in movies as diverse as Blade Runner, Under Fire and Club Paradise, and find her to be a unique and outstanding presence in each film. I met Ms. Cassidy at the Chiller Theatre convention in April of 2018, as shown in the cover photo, and it was great to meet her. I’d always hoped to interview Joanna, and last month she took some time to speak to me about her long and wide-ranging career. I hope you all enjoy reading this interview.
six feet under
It’s hard to review something like Six Feet Under: The Complete Series (2001 – 2005). There’s a good chance that fans of the series already own all the season sets for Six Feet Under, and viewers who have never watched the show may bulk at buying a box collection of the entire series. True, some will see this as an excellent time to buy the series on DVD, others will pass it over. No matter whom the audience is, rest assured this is a grand collection to one of HBO’s best and (I believe) underrated series.
